Who Benefits from Psychotherapy?
Each person is engaged in a unique journey through life, in search of his or her own meaning and purpose. The numerous challenges along the way can sometimes leave people feeling distressed and unable to cope; and at other times stuck or at a difficult crossroads. Counselling and psychotherapy offer help for all kinds of emotional problems, such as depression, loss, anxiety and confusion. It often benefits those lacking feelings of self-worth, experiencing difficulties in their relationships and those going through a time of change or transition.
Additionally, the therapeutic process helps people who feel stuck and who wish to develop their potential, and those who experience a sense of meaninglessness or who are chronically dissatisfied with their lives. It can also benefit people suffering from eating disorders, sexual problems and certain physical problems for which there are no clear causes.
Sometimes people can’t always say what their problem is in so many words; only that there is something they want to change.
Counselling and psychotherapy can also help people come to terms with what can’t be changed.
